Welcome Zhu Ma! How's it like to be in Jurong East's hottest school :) ? Is the environment stressful? Does your son spend a lot of time doing CCA?

Teachers... some nice, some not. Principal.....no comment (she might be checking in this thread).

Homework I think highly depends on who the teacher is. Quite a number of parents says a lot of homework. So far very minimal for ds.

By the way, welcome to JPS, rpsd.

Hi ChiefKiasu! There are alot of schools out there that is hotter :wink: The school only allows 1 CCA per child and he only started Robotics as CCA this year. So far so good lah, only need to attend CCA once a week. Stressful? Maybe only starting from this year cos homework is quite heavy for son.

Hi rpsd! Like what EN said, i oso felt that like all schools, there are good and bad teachers. As for homework, my son don't have much homework when he was in P1 & P2. But this year P3 really alot alot of homework man. Can be as much as 4 or 5 homework per day, of cos sometimes there is none lah.

Zhu Ma, nay.... no insiders information. But yes, she did comment my son to be very good at asking question. Only problem is while she is busy explaining, he is also busy talking. Once she finished explaining and there the questions pop up. :lol:

Does your child need to sit for entrance test before being admitted to Robotics? I did ask ds to join in but he is not interested. He wants to join violin which I am okay at first until I see that he needs to sit for ABRSM exams. Literally means if he takes up, he will be sitting for two ABRSM exam per year. One for piano & one for violin which I say no as I think it can create too much stress.

Join chess last year but he found that the teacher just leave the P1 to play on their own. He calls it quit because he feels that he don't learn anything.

So, this year he has no eca and by next year don't know what he wants to take up. I feel should at least take up one eca.
